It’s quite cold this morning. The landlord of the inn gave me the ride to the road station with the 73 years old man with whom I spoke yesterday. He said he wears a helmet instead of a sedge hut. Wow, indeed it’s reasonable considering this snowy mountain side trail.
I told him that I booked Takanoko hotel today because I liked hot springs, then he said he would stay at the same hotel. Tresure every encounter. We shook hands and said goodbye. He’s an energetic and soft-hearted person, and I wish him good luck for his “Kechigan” – the completion of his pilgrimage.
